Verified Reviews of Waterfront Inn Mackinaw City

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Deceptive online photos."
Overall Score2.0/ 5
The photos shown online do not represent the actual hotel. It was early October, 2021 when we stayed at this location, but our room had bent lampshades, small holes in the window coverings and the mattress was very hard. I will not be staying there again.

"Filthy and rude employees."
Overall Score1.0/ 5
the management does not like it when you request a refund and explain how filthy the room was. They scream and yell that you are now trespassing. This hotel is not recommended if possible stay in St Ignace. its a better atmosphere and cleaner, friendlier motel employees!

"Terrible Experience"
Overall Score1.0/ 5
Checked in and upon entering the room we were disgusted by the lack of cleanliness. Carpet was dirty and ripped. bathroom floor had a black ring around it. Curtains hanging off the rod, full of holes. mattresses had no box spring. just a sheet. bugs under the sheet that was on it.nothing like the website showed in the pictures. Proceeded to check out and request a full refund. Only to be berated by two front desl personel;l stating I would not get a refund. Asked for a manager to speak to. Was accused of telling other guests that their rooms were dirty. Not at all what was said. We only spoke to the front desl personnel. The manager finan ally appeared after being " gone for the day "and "very busy" and screamed at us to get off the property. No interest in resolving a complaint. It is against their policy to complain about an unsanitary room. I will NEVBER return to their motel. nor any of the other ones operated by the same management group. Absolutely the worsk experience ever. Stay in St Ignace everyone.
